Madoff sentenced to 150 years in prison
(06/29/09) NEW YORK (AP) - Bernard Madoff has been sentenced to 150 years in prison for his multibillion-dollar fraud scheme.
U.S. District Judge Denny Chin handed down the sentenced in New York on Monday.
The 71-year-old former Nasdaq chairman was arrested late last year after confessing to his sons that his secretive investment advisory business was a "big lie."
He pleaded guilty to securities fraud and other charges in March and has been jailed since.
